2 months late (it really is a New Years activity), we made mochi at Scott and Naomi’s place with a big group of friends.

For regular mochi, there was nori (seaweed wrap), soy sauce with sugar, ponzu sauce with daikon, and for dessert style, kinako with sugar, and red bean paste and strawberries to add inside.
